Rhiannon Alpers

Instructor II

Rhiannon Alpers is a papermaker, letterpress printer and book artist. Her artwork explores the untenanted remnants of plant and animal life. Her work is entrenched in the history and visual sensibility of cabinets of curiosities and early natural history documentation. The structural and aesthetic construction of her sculptural work seeks to illuminate the beauty of remnants in the natural process of creation, transformation and decay. 

She publishes limited edition and one of a kind books under the imprint of Gazelle & Goat Press. She is the current President for the Hand Bookbinders of California. She has exhibited her artist books and sculptural books nationally, and participated in the 6th Biennial CODEX Book Fair in 2017.
